"Yum! Yum!"

- Book Gremlin reading "Dining After Midnight in New York."

The Book Reading Gremlin was one of the many gremlins that invaded the Clamp Center building and was shown reading at least two different books.


He first appears in the laboratory scene where he was seen reading a different book called "The Double Helix." Before Forster gets attacked by Greta and later, he is seen again with the Gizmobuster Gremlin who was holding a teddy bear while reading book named "Dining After Midnight in New York." He also laughed along with the Gizmobuster Gremlin about the teddy bear that was hanging from a small noose. The book reading gremlin was destroyed by the Electric Gremlin along with the most of the gremlins (except Greta).


  • "Dining After Midnight in New York" could be a reference to the rule of eating after midnight that turns a Mogwai to a Gremlin, as Mohawk, Lenny, George, and Daffy did in New York. The book is also fictional, made only for the movie.
  • He may be a reincarnation of one of the Caroling Gremlins, because they could read and he can read as well.
